Casanova Red Cosmos
Cosmos bipinnatus. A compact first true red cosmo contrasting with a yellow center which stands out on its own. The Casanova series are topped full with large daisy-like flowers on uniform bushy foliage. One of the easiest and most popular direct seed annuals. Simply sprinkle the seed where you would like them to grow and magically they appear! Great fun for kids and the daintiest of cut flowers. Height around 2 feet and a branching habit of 2-3 feet. Approx. 25 seeds/pkg.
May be started inside 4 weeks before last frost or direct seeded after last frost. Plant 1⁄4 inches deep in warm soil (24-26 degrees C). Transplant after risk of frost has passed and once the soil has warmed. Space 8-12 inches apart in a full sun location.
Grows well in poor soil. Dead-head regularly.
